Peshawar school attack: Empathy is fine but will Pakistan change its attitude to terror?

Anybody who thinks the spontaneous sympathy in India for Pakistanis after the Taliban attack killed children may mark a turning point in our relationship should think again: the attack has strengthened support for the Pak Army, not civilian rule. #Terrorism #ISI #The Neighbourhood #Pakistani army #Indo-Pak ties #Pakistani Taliban #Peshawar school attack #Peshawar Attacks

Why Pakistan always gets our goat: We are confusing public machismo with strategy

Pakistan's strategy may look irrational, but it is entirely rational from its army's own narrow point of view to retain power. This is why despite efforts to revive political dialogue, it finds ways to get under our skin #Narendra Modi #diplomacy #ConnectTheDots #The Neighbourhood #terrorist #counter terrorism #NSA Ajit Doval #India-Pak Talks

The existential threat to India posed by China's Pakistan gambit

The massive Chinese investment in Pakistan has dangerous consequences for India too, and geopolitical equations change. Even China may have got more than it bargained for. India needs to play its cards extremely carefully #diplomacy #Tibet #The Neighbourhood #Xinjiang #string of pearls #China-Pakistan Investment

Sugar Daddy Xi Jinping is effectively reducing Pakistan to a vassal state

The Chinese plan to invest a massive $46 billion in Pakistan may be aimed against India, but it is also an effort to keep Pakistan in one piece and prevent Islamist jihadis from threatening China's own backyard #China #Pakistan #ConnectTheDots #Nawaz Sharif #Geopolitics #The Neighbourhood #Balochistan #South Asia #Xi Jinping #China-Pak economic corridor

Double the force: Parikkar takes Modi-Doval hardline on Pak firing further

The new NDA policy of hitting Pakistan back hard when provoked is a much-needed corrective to the old policy of not doing anything to escalate tensions. #Narendra Modi #diplomacy #The Neighbourhood #India-Pakistan Ties #LoC firing #Ajit Doval #Nuclear Doctrine

It's not about Kashmir: Like UPA, PM Modi is on the wrong track with Pakistan

Pakistan's creation as an ideological state based on religion and in opposition to India makes it a genetically defective nation-state, as on Pakistani journalist notes. Our strategy needs to deal with this reality, not the romance of peace. #HowThisWorks #Terrorism #The Neighbourhood #Zia-ul-Haq #Muhammad Iqbal #India-Pakistan Ties #islamic-state #Religion as Ideology

Why it should be NPR plus Aadhaar, not NPR or Aadhaar

The home ministry is giving NPR primacy over Nandan Nilekani's Aadhaar. Actually, Rajnath Singh should use both, and the objective should be to identify illegal immigrants, but not throw them out. #Rajnath Singh #Nandan Nilekani #Unique ID #The Neighbourhood #NPR #Nepalese #Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants

Welcome mat for Sharif is ok, but we shouldn't let our guard down

India should adopt a policy of always being ready to talk with Pakistan, but must never lower its guard or presume that Pakistan will abandon its terror groups. #Sri Lanka #Bangladesh #diplomacy #India-China #The Neighbourhood #India-Pak Ties #Nawaj Sharif #Narendra Modi Inauguration

China needs a U-turn, India only a nudge on the road to reform

In many ways, India is farther down the road to reform than China. But China tends to be more decisive when it decides to makes changes while we blunder along #Chindia #Deng Xiaoping #The Neighbourhood #Xi Jinping #India-China Reforms
